After running five Italian restaurants across the course of his career, chef David Ayn was well equipped to assemble the menu at Davio, where simple and soulful southern Italian dishes reign supreme. Inspired by the intense heat and flavors of the southern Italian Peninsula, Ayn introduces veal chops and steaks to the coal grill, peppered with caramelized onions and imported olive oil. While seated at the common area of "Davio's Table," families share heaping platters of antipasto, family-style plates of seasonally rotating seafood, and a single sweater knitted for six people.
